The research field of geometry processing is concerned with the representation, analysis, modeling, simulation and optimization of geometric data. In this thesis, we introduce novel techniques and efficient algorithms for problems in geometry processing, such as the modeling and simulation of elastic deformable objects, the design of tangential...

This paper proposes a real-time decision support tool based on the rolling-horizon principle that manages staff activities (relocations and maintenance) of a one-way carsharing system and considers carpooling the staff in the relocated carsharing vehicles for extra cost reduction. The decision support tool is composed of three elements: a...

The expansion of offshore power transmission and generation in the North Seas of Europe is accelerating rapidly. This is due to several drivers, including the decarbonization and reform of the European power system, and innovations in offshore wind and high-voltage direct current transmission. So far, this European North Seas offshore grid is...

Range verification based on prompt gamma detection is an important step to improve dose control for proton therapy. To deduce the proton range from the detected prompt gamma emission, a prediction of the measured profile is required. This study introduces the Boltzmann solver as a faster alternative to the Monte Carlo simulations to produce dose...

As the margins for improvements in the current freight transport system become limited, researchers address more and more the importance of collaboration between the actors which is crucial for the implementation of new, more efficient transport concepts as synchromodality. In addition, rail is concerned as a sustainable mode of transport that...

MapReduce ecosystems are (still) widely popular for big data processing in data centers. To address the diverse non-functional requirements arising from many and increasingly more sophisticated users, the community has developed many scheduling policies for MapReduce workloads. Although some individual policies can dynamically optimize for...

An estimated 9 million infants are born prematurely each year in south Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and the leading cause of death in preterms is respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a popular treatment for RDS and has been proven to be safe, feasible, and effective for use in low- and middle-income...

In this study, a pressure filtration model for a slurry of milk fat crystal aggregates is developed, validated and used to investigate the effect of pressure-time profiles. The model focuses on the expression step and describes oil flow locally. The filter cake is modelled as a double porous non-linear elastic medium with permeabilities...

Concrete is currently the most widely used material in construction field. A good performance of concrete structures is required for reaching the designed service life. However, the initial scatter in the quality of concrete is unavoidable in practice, possibly resulting from improper design, poor execution, or deterioration due to stresses...

For optimization of the use of Supplementary Cementitious Materials (SCMs), i.e. blast furnace slag (BFS) and fly ash (FA), in cementitious system a numerical model for simulating the hydration and microstructure development of blended cements can be used. Several models have been proposed in recent years to simulate the hydration and...

Launch costs for high-resolution space telescopes for Earth observation can be reduced when the telescope mirrors are made deployable. However, such a system is subject to optical aberrations that decreases image quality. To counter these aberrations, an Aberration Correction System (ACS) is proposed that uses a deformable mirror (DM) which is...

In the modeling of fractured reservoirs, the spatial representation plays an important role to enclose the heterogeneities present in the subsurface. The reservoir flow response obtained from simulation in time is determined by the type of method and by the scale of the representation (fine or coarse). As a deterministic model cannot capture the...

According to its creators, ICN is designed to fit the way we use the internet better than IP currently does.
The use of named data and distributed network layer caching may provide a more efficient utilization of
network resources due to the stateful forwarding plane which allows data to be retrieved from caches
close by the...

Motion cueing algorithms are used in motion simulation to map the inertial vehicle motion onto the limited simulator motion space. This mapping causes mismatches between the unrestricted visual motion and the constrained inertial motion, which results in perceived motion incongruence (PMI). It is still largely unknown what exactly causes...

Thirty years of research on validation and verification have returned a plethora of methods and statistical techniques through methodological and case studies. It is, however, this abundance of methods and techniques that poses a major challenge. Due to time and budget constraints, it is impossible to apply all the available methods and...

This paper investigates the effects of simulator motion on driver steering performance, and how this depends on the available visual information and external disturbances such as wind gusts. A human-in-the-loop driving experiment was performed in which twelve participants steered a fixedvelocity car to follow a winding road (target tracking, TT)...

This paper presents a research endeavouring to model site work in a 4D BIM model. Next simulations are performed with this model in 5 scenarios including specific interventions in work organisation, notably changing positons of facilities for site workers. A case study has been done in a construction project in the Netherlands. The research has...

Guidewires and catheters are used during minimally invasive interventional procedures to traverse in vascular system and access the desired position. Computer models are increasingly being used to predict the behavior of these instruments. This information can be used to choose the right instrument for each case and increase the success rate...

This paper describes the steps involved in the design, construction, and testing of a gasifier-specific solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) system. The design choices are based on reported thermodynamic simulation results for the entire gasifier- gas cleanup-SOFC system. The constructed SOFC system is tested and the measured parameters are compared...

A complex marine project consist of series of operations, with each operation subject to a predefined operational limit and duration, depending on the equipment being used. If actual weather conditions exceed the operational limit, then the operation cannot be executed and hence downtime occurs. It is up to contractors, such as Boskalis, to...
